Presentation and debate “Audio Description and Audio Subtitling of Videoworks: A Place of Its Own”

Festival Event


17 November 2020


Barcelona (Spain)


30 March 2021



Following the challenges posed by the production of the films “La città dentro” and “Black, I Mean Normal”, LOOP Barcelona has also organized the meeting Audio Description and Audio Subtitling of Videoworks: A Place of Its Own to discuss how the ocular-centric bias that so obviously accompanies the production of most works of art underscores the importance of the “audio” component in audiovisual works. Audio-description and audio-subtitling for the visually impaired is a field that holds a creative potential not yet fully recognized. This meeting focused on discussing this potential and on how certain communities use different tools to conduct their construction of place and belonging.
